TGTE strongly condemns the siege of the United Nations office in Sri Lanka

Jul 8, 2010, 00:50 Digg this story!

The Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam (TGTE) strongly condemns the siege of the United Nations office in Sri Lanka led by a senior cabinet member who is also a close ally of the Sri Lankan President. The Sri Lankan police response to this aggressive demonstration is in stark contrast to the brutal force it used against peaceful anti -government demonstrations in the past. Sri Lankan security forces are engaged in holding tens of thousands of Tamil civilians in internment camps, while the UN staff that cared about those in the camps are being threatened in this manner.

TGTE urges UN not to be intimidated by the siege but to continue as planned!

TGTE strongly condemns the seige of the United Nations office in Sri Lanka led by a senior   cabinet member who is also a close ally of the Sri Lankan President. The Sri Lankan police response to this aggressive demonstration is in stark contrast to the brutal force it used against peaceful anti -government demonstrations in the past. Sri Lankan security forces are engaged in holding tens of thousands of Tamil civilians in internment camps, while the UN staff that cared about those in the camps are being threatened in this manner.

TGTE challenges the Government of Sri Lanka to act responsibly by taking all necessary steps to allow the UN to function smoothly and to fully cooperate with the UN panel.  Sri Lankan government cannot escape its responsibility for genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes by using intimidation and threat.

TGTE urges the UN not to be intimidated by this "hostage" politics of the Sri Lankan government and to proceed as planned for the panel to investigate genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes. We are prepared to offer full assistance and cooperation to the work of the UN panel.
